Fasting on Fridays (and Wednesdays), the “station days”, was common practice in the first few centuries of Christianity; the fast would be broken either after None (the prayers that started around 3:00 PM) or after Vespers (the prayers that started around 6:00 PM), depending upon the community.
Oh, the Early early days of Christianity. Like maybe the first two or three? I thought I knew a lot about Christianity, but apparently I don't know enough. I should know at least this. But I do know what both Wednesday and Friday represents during Holy Week. Well, ya learn something new everyday day. Especially on Duolingo.
